Cannot connect to WMI provider Invalid class 0x80041010

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Brainy,

I think its little complicated for me to explain my problem in detail. However, I tried my best to do this, previously I had 32-bit version of Microsoft SLQ server in the system and then I recently uninstalled it and then try to install the 64-bit version of Microsoft SQL server. When I try to open the SQL server, I got an error message. I did the uninstallation still I get this error. Please help me. Thanks.


SQL Server Configuration Manager

Cannot connect to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 and later servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager.

There’s been a missing component of the program to run so this error is appearing. The file name is “sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof”. Without the file, the task can’t be completed.

Here’s how you’ll complete your task:

  1. Start Command Prompt.
  2. Run this command:
    mofcomp.exe "C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL Server100Sharedsqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"

The file location might be in various places. So, if it gives error that can’t find the path or file, enable hidden files/folders in your PC, then run a search from the Windows Explorer. Mention the file path inside the command.

You’re good to go!
